The Daily Show host Jon Stewart on Tuesday took a look at how MSNBC, Fox News and CNN covered Monday’s inauguration events in a very interesting manner.
Stewart played clips of commentators’ exaggerated praise of the president’s speech and added, “It’s a call to action like JFK’s ‘Ask not what your country can do for you’ or FDR’s ‘The only thing we have to fear is fear itself’ or Jimmy Carter‘s somewhat inexplicable ‘She’s a Brick House, she’s mighty mighty…’”
Comedy Central’s host then questioned how the networks covered theinauguration. MSNBC started off by commenting on its “massivecrowd,” Fox, on the other hand, noted a “much smaller crowd than four years ago” and CNN unlike the rest was too much thoughtful about MichelleObama‘s dress.
